Crazy Man on Streetcar Condemns whole busload to Hell

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 2:42 pm

My front tire’s been going soft fast ever since Friday when the bike shop put on a new tire
so I took the chance of TTC. Belgium, France, shut down, global paranoia carefully maximized
but the streetcars booming with business of a November Sunday.

This chisel faced oldschooler piles on at the first stop we come to.
He’s pure throwback, bitten features and a 1940s serious man’s tweedy boiler
and no sooner has he taken a seat then he’s rejoining the fight from the bus stop
They’d all waited about twenty minutes from the sounds of it with this guy going at them
“they’re all going to hell, confused children of Satan,” and most of those from that bus stop
are already ready to scrap with them. They’d had more than enough at the bus stop.

Usually on TTC I don’t join in those smiles and laughs at people being crazy “oh haha”

but this guy really broke the roof on it. Some of his contenders from the bus stop
were already laying into him from throng at the in the middle of the double length bus
and he was hurling apocalypse at them, all listening to their Iron Maiden and going to hell
too confused by their little devices and never had a true moment in their lives
and pretty stark with the wording! Someone on the streetcar tells him off
for saying all this shit with a child and his grandfather sitting in front of him.

Dude winds up the vocal chords and goes at grandfather and grandson
telling the ever increasing passengers that the kid, who looks about 6,
will also grow up to be a confused satan worship idiot just like his grandfather
and the grandfather’s head flips back with laughter at this incredible riser
then the supercute redhead in one of the single seats across from him
gets into it. She too had boarded at the stop that he got on at.
Just lays down the law. She’s about 5.5 and 107 pounds of artfulness
and has the smartphone engaged to film him if really gets at it.

Zero fear she strafes the guy, and I move to the outside seat to cut him off
if he physically goes at her. He jousts off attacking her listening choices
and dismissing her as an opponent. Then there’s the sound of a voice
of someone behind me who sounds like he’s about 6.4 220
who doesn’t like being called Satanic. Wiry Mr Chiselfeatures
goes full dark salt spray on the back of the bus crowd.
Reaffirming his views on Satanic modern humanity
and its continual ignorance, confusion, and distraction.

Meanwhile two large dogs and a baby carriage have completely filled the aisle
Both dogs look to have some husky in them, one all white, the other also incredibly well behaved
the redhead is now all about the baby in the baby carriage, and has joined
a communion of the infants defense crew, which is substantial,
and includes the white husky, more or less wrapping itself around the baby carriage.

Chiselface gets up and rattles a bit most perturbed by the tiny beautiful red haired gal
but heads to the front. Once vertical and way at the front he goes town
on the whole bus load. Does anyone think he cares what people think of him?
An elderly likely Greek, Italian or Portugese man at the front is now concerned
with getting past him and they argue while chisel continues denouncing us all.
Different new people to the streetcar react with shock when he singles them out.
Going to hell, fast. Completely ignorant.

We arrive to a stop and incredibly it looks like he’s getting off, but no.
He’s making a show of intimidating the old Greek man from getting off.
The Greek tells him to get out of his fucking way and get off the bus.
Chisel directs a few pointed insults at several of his foes and still again
tries to get at me with some remarks but I just look out the window.

Huge cheers as he disembarks.

On the way back, the streetcar actually hit a guy
who walked right in front of it when it was going full speed
but the guy was unhurt and just wanted to leave.
He just walked right into its path.
The double length streetcar blocked College St for 15 minutes
032before all protocols had been followed.

Downy Woodpecker of Downsview

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 1:03 pm


It was just at a random spot on the walk to lunch I decided to peer through the fence into the woods at the high end of the ravine/brook area behind the light industry in Downsview.

And right there, completely unselfconsciously, was a woodpecker busy in action, thoroughly transfixed on the job, and just fast all the time, but munching away, and darting along the tree, upside down or otherwise. I close enough to see the remarkable feet of this bird, but even so, not that easily seen with the camera. All part of a vast splendid scene there, where I’m so lucky to periodically have cause to stroll through. 4970

This particular woodpecker I think deserves a more regal name. A dazzling bird, and eating with the grace of any particularly fine eaters anyone might want to put forward. So the woodpecker pecks wood, and we have to call it a woodpecker. Like Batman and Spiderman combined into one in the non-fiction world where we are born.

November Dreams of Butterflies and Flight in General

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 2:51 pm



it’s definitely all about gliding
How do you walk up a hill? You float yourself forward
and tipping forward glide, as effortless as on flat ground if done right
just walk on it like it’s flat land, slowly and oddly but you really
can balance on a steep hill with the same pressures and weights
as on neutral land, it’s essentially the same surface force
you’re walking on. “Butterflies scale cliffs but thats one thing I wouldn’t do
it’s the same formula for walking on non gravity in the balance of things
very primitive at it. In my childhood I could fly outright.

2015 NDP Exodus

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 2:02 pm

To be the government amounts to an oath to being fair, and
also to a large extent to be good employers.

Would we be good employers if employees had worked around the clock
at incredible pace for many months and when finally the results came in
we dumped vitriol on them? I’ve worked for people like that, and I did not
consider them fair. How about thanking them for their incredibly hard work?
Mulcair, Dewar, Nash, Cash, Craig Scott, Linda McQuaig. The NDP is as strong now
as they had been. This is Canadian democracy where second place
accomplishes almost nothing. The electorate picked up on that
if the political parties didn’t. And the electorate, the governed,
are the largest party in any country.

The move to being more like the other parties, top down, frugal, ‘centrist’
was depressing for me, or maybe just boring, but we gave it a chance as a strategy.
And the Liberals deftly beat the strategy. A lesson learned. The NDP MP’s
worked unbelievably hard for those seats. They should all keep them and make
the most they can out of them. Mulcair has earned that chair.

ps Mulcair doesn’t seem all that NDP to me. So there’s that.
A respectable and admirable human being, sharing much in common
with both Liberals and NDP and even Conservative. Comes down well
on a lot of it. But I’ve never thought of the NDP as a party
where you sacrifice your own opinion in favour of what the party decides.
There can be differences within a party and if there aren’t there’s no oxygen
and the party dies. The sentence “This will get us elected” should be shelved

A growing process for everyone.

The NDP policy platform would quite definitively have been the best for me personally
and people of my sort, even though Trudeau offers some similar things.
Also the stern opposition to raiding cash from unemployment insurance into general revenue
which has somehow redefined the word insurance. And Old Age Pensions
given that my RRSP loses as much as I save every quarter
I’d say it’s inevitable I’ll be broke in old age.
The Banks take half your life savings and winnow down your half
and you’re supposed to rely on savings rather than anything solid.
The banks can lose all your savings.

What can I do? I save up money put it in RRSP and the RRSP loses it.

The Banks and insurance companies and government are all pretty much one giant thing.
And what they are is processors of what the rest of us do.

It’s just that unglamourous.

Respect 009work.

The Flowers Of Politics, Like The Flowers of Romance

The Flowers Of Politics, Like The Flowers of Romance

There is defitely an adrenalin for the imagination in
Change. Winnipeg has reaffirmed with the Liberals
after all these years. I can easily imagine it but wouldn’t predict it.

Calgary transforming.

It’s quite comical that such a massive shift in the country’s course
arrives back to the Liberals, like back to the drawing board
with how to have all the wonderfully different people in the country
succeed in getting through winters and keeping it together in the summmers


Bridges, pharmaceuticals, old age care, small forgotten towns
attack ad companies, this election effects everyone

Yukon goes Liberal

Diversity indeed


Things worth repairing: Science and Technology, it’s got to get sensible again

Unemployment Insurance: we pay for it and no one had the right
to take it to another purpose. People need it, even if they work
in a large and stressful cities. Unemployment can occur for
many reasons. Workers get worn down at their jobs but
rather than go on disability they wish to work again, but it takes time,
or, they are struck by luck, out of nowhere an employer closes.
The good strong unemployment insurance we pay for
should be there at such times. Surpluses!


Vaughn truly talks a good game on all the Charter Rights issues.

Mulcair perhaps the most graceful affirmation speech in the history of democracy.

more flies with honey some times

Speaking of which, Stephen Harper is stepping down as leader

Moncton Riverview, St Jean Sur Le Richelieu, Windsor Ontario
downtown Ottawa, EastVan, Parkdale, Trinity,

zero Conservatives elected anywhere I’ve ever lived

Do I turn the tv off before or after Harper’s concession song 0 so weird

The people in the subway will be more cheerful I can tell you that

Stress, life under Harper, so much risktaking, not Conservative at all

Canada needs to be a thoughtful and calm country, a warm spirited country

Quebec’s Federal Politics is more colourful and fun

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 1:28 pm

A recent poll made it sound like the Niqab issue had instantly turned Quebec into a Stephen Harper loving Conservative place. But looking anew today at all the recent polls done in Quebec it’s just the two EKOS polls with Conservatives with a slight lead, while all other polls have NDP leading with Liberals in second and BQ claiming a solid fifth of voter intentions as expressed to pollsters. 016

I’ve always admired Quebec’s more progressive and libertied spirit of life so it’s hard to imagine Quebec en masse becoming Harper Conservative. In the alarm at the anomaly of it one upside would be getting to see what kind of Harper Conservatives Quebec would produce. Definitely a relief to see it was just one outlier polling firm with some different weighting formulas. The weighting of polls makes a farce of the manipulative schemata of polling. An honest reporting – ie the only truly useful kind – would be to present the data in basic form, then issue what qualifiers came to mind. As I’ve said elsewhere I only answer polls if the employee doing the poll sounds like they’re in duress from the crap they must take making even coldcalls. Provide some breathing space and at least one success without rancour. I’ve nearly had to do that job at a few points in life but luckily found other crap jobs haha. 005 Presently serving as the yogi for a group of sparrows. They’re not a large band of sparrows but they are very healthy and doing really well and have peace with the surrounding sparrows, and even pretty conscious realities with the starlings. I’ve seen them actually meet large groups of starlings in a neutral tree. Peaceful relations truly helps all.

Could Canada’s relationships with the world and relationships within Canada have gone better with another party in power federally over the last 30 years? What current of progress has been rolling over our writhing stone of a continent from Mulroney through Chretien into Harper. Life was both more instantly brutal and somehow milder at the same time in the past. We live in an era of suggested brutality, where it is thought about often if not always, as if without this constant stressful thinking it would all blow apart, constant tracking of data and information to an expensive absurdity that is of so little interest. And yet there is a massive economy of it, surely the fastest growing industry, security, surveillance, data management, data intake via internet, only resulting in a world where nobody believes anything is necessarily what it claims to be. People they know, thats it. People in SUV’s not so much. Vote SUV if you want to but speeding in lanes you don’t fit won’t stand up in courts.

Anyway I feel like I agree with the same volumes of people I had previously, and am over the shock of imagining Quebec voting Conservative. Conservatives trailing in Ontario throughout this. But Saskatchewan and Alberta seem to buckling down in pure Conservative Country of Canada. Calgary and BC going in another direction and Edmonton was always somewhat NDP. Newfoundland Labrador and the Maritimes are solidly in with the Liberals. Everyone has so much in common. Needs to be done right, not some rush job, saving money for the election by simply not fulfilling budgeted programs.

If your taxes are shaved 3% and, the value of having a government is reduced by 93% have you really gained?

I was born in Moncton and moved to St. Jean Quebec when I was 6
I take it under great advisement how you express yourselves electorally
recognizing that some don’t follow this shit or believe in it
I wonder all the time about all the places I’ve ever lived
and the people I loved or liked there

St Jean neighbourhoods a lot more like Hamilton than Windsor
and o to bring good news to east Vancouver

the best form of self-defense is a non-violent life …truly

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 3:48 pm


Bill C-51 and Earth

My thoughts about this, if anyone wonders, aren’t directed toward court rooms, but towards means of not letting effect behaviour. It’s to suffocating and miserable to live in a way that is geared towards how it will be viewed future employers’ doing background checks or by secret agencies given free lance power or by hackers for that matter. When it comes to government surveilaince, one rationalization helps take it off my mind if it ever is on it: In the pre C-51 world, the technology was there, the ability was there, and those in the police service willing to use it, ie., to cheat, already had that opportunity to do so. And it’s mainly the ones that would cheat one worries about being given omnipotent supralegal power over others. That more may cheat now that it’s legal, and unobserved, is possible. But I have a second provisio. While there is said to be too little or no oversight, since much of it is conducted on computers, there is that kind pure and absolute record of the internet portion, and all other digital portions. Cheaters would know that ultimately it is knowable every decision they made. (Cheaters being those who use such power with illegitimate motive, or just illegitimately.) The digital world is a kind of absolute oversight to all that sweeps through it. It is people who have a vestige of common spirit of being, of wanting this much shared this much mutually. Even as lovers might meet every Sunday but not get in each other’s hair the rest of the week haha. Mutually developed degrees of sharing. The Other doesn’t want to know every detail of the lover’s days at work and on the bus and essentially relive their life continuously while living their own. Do not lose your humanity.


Russia Invades Syria/Skies, or, the sky doesn’t rise in the west

everything that was already true is true anyway. I find a lot of this guy’s write up of it informative but don’t really agree with his interpretation of Putin’s or Russia’s motives or intents, specially as regards to U.S. politics, though agree with waiting him out, as the outcome will far exceed the plan, in meaningful result. Russians versus the mysterious and less and less real sounding ISIS. Shouldn’t such information devouring countries know where the money is coming from by now? They capture an oil well – who buys the oil?




every animal is an individual
they are collective though
in their way


At least someone knows you said it
You are in fact free



Saudi Arabia beheads more people than ISIS,it’s like their calling card, and Canada is helping arm them. 911 was principally Saudi. Osama Bin Laden was like the New England Patriots of Saudi Family. The oil industry has the money to do nearly anything.

Human beings can also

The Bird Newspaper, September 30, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 1:48 pm

Starlings are this magnificent species of bird.
There are over 400,000 of them nearyby at any given tine

Every change of season the very organized group sends teams of high end starlings
to scout then invade full out in sudden takeovers the sparrows habitats
in the old piping holes and damaged shipping dock buffers and some of the vents
as happenchance works.

Some of the vents are deathtraps for birds I expect, or even portals into the building’s
disastrous for a bird interior. That aside, it is general full fledged sparrow territory.
The whole workplace area goes Sparrow all around the building, light ecological footprint
and cleans for insects, and never attacks people. Starlings are double or triple the size
and brilliantly intellectual birds, far more evolved than humans, just not in our piping and vents
The Starlings are large, in the vents and piping it’s a winterlong nightmare
like the worst hbo addictive season ever, the starlings just going insane in the piping
and every monday morning a dead starling having worked its way all through the piping

sparrows just stay in the little area there, near the opening. they ‘re scared of the dark
because as you know, it is has never been completely dark outside, at times it’s been dark
but there is always light – until trapped indoors in a workplace birds shouldnt’ go
May 2015


The good news is that no sparrows or starlings are trapped in the building.
Such stress once a bird gets in.


I live in pure sparrow territory
so while I respect starlings enormously
it’s pure sparrow territory.
They need it, it’s their’s, that should be the end fo it.
I look for peace with the starlings.
they have a much larger world
our building and the nearby plaza are sparrow nests
and I will throw things

That said starlings are magnificent

Olive is here

Filed under: Uncategorized — oversion @ 2:24 pm

All I can offer is the essence of value, being a dream. but I bet you will have similar results. The great regulator of diet and body chemistry is, The Olive. It will not fail you. The solid integrity of the Olive once inside you immediately sets to work balancing and refreshing all of the organs – all become more olive like – while providing in nutrition and strength a near infinite and almost patient supply of helpful anything you might need. Too rushed for breakfast in the morning? Who isn’t? Eat two or three olives and have no worries til noon. Your organs will happily work over the olives, with their elusive oils. Not wanting to confront a long afternoon of digestion while busy? Have some olives. And a nap. Home from work and thinking of nuts, chips and cookies? Have several olives, and get that sense of satisfaction. Midnight snack? Olives. My Grand Aunt married a man last name Olive. Been out of touch since the 30s, maybe the war. Gramma’s sisters married all over Canada.
